Winter Wonderland and Pretty In Pink with Kenny K's Xmas Girls

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today Team Marianne are in the hot seat at the

and the very talented Denise has set the theme of

Pretty In Pink

As you know I just have to maintain my one Xmas card each week so here is what I came up with as a little inspiration to those of you who have maybe not yet started on your Christmas card collections.
wow did I enjoy this theme, I have used black as the contrasting colour and some gorgeous papers available from the Secret Crafter.  The image is easily recognisable one of the hot girls from Kenny K's fabulous collection.  I matched the inside of the card to the front of it.
I used one of my new round the page MS punches to create a base frame for the image and added swirls of spun sugar distress ink to the frame. Adding some gorgeous baby pink pearls to the top and bottom of the image plate and this gorgeous Wild Orchid flower, with some embossed holly leaves to finish and a little Xmas glitter.  The sentiment is from My Sentiment Exactly.
The image has been coloured in with copics and I have used liquid appliqué to give the fluffy bits that extra depth.  As it was wet I added some glitter so it sparkles too.

Don't forget to pop over and see the design team inspirational pieces.

Don't forget I have Candy here
